Lata Krishnan and Ajay Shah believe in the magic of collaboration.
Both earned degrees from prestigious universities, Krishnan from the London School of Economics and Shah from Baroda and Stanford universities. And both ended up in the Bay Area, where they met and fell in love in 1986 when Krishnan was a financial analyst at Montgomery Asset Management and Shah worked as an engineer at Advanced Micro Devices.
In 2004, Krishnan and Shah started Shah Capital Partners, a mid-market technology private equity fund where Shah is the managing partner and Krishnan is the CFO.

Krishnan also serves on the boards of CEO Women, which creates job opportunities for immigrant and refugee women, the Commonwealth Club, and Global Heritage Fund, a conservancy and preservation group; on the advisory council of the Global Philanthropy Forum, a part of the World Affairs Council of Northern California; and on the advisory board of Narika, a shelter for abused women in the Asian community.
Silicon Valley Community Foundation CEO and President Emmett D. Carson and ONE: Innovation Through Philanthropy contributor Jennifer Roberts sat down with Krishnan and Shah at Silver Lake's Menlo Park offices to explore the connections between the couple's entrepreneurial backgrounds and their philanthropy and talk about the lessons they've learned.
Lata Krishnan: We plan our family's philanthropy just as we would plan a business.
Lata: It is.
Lata: I don't think there's a recipe.
Lata: You can bring people together to work collaboratively.
Lata: It's the type of thing we always think about as a family - how we can bring a better understanding of life outside the U.S. - probably because we have such a nomadic, global background.
Lata: Or if there are events going on, if I can take the kids, I do that. They're 18 and 21. There's nothing to beat an experience, to be honest. Whether you go to a slum or a heritage site, nothing has more power than seeing the circumstances of someone else's life.
What else motivates you to keep giving? Lata: It's soul food.
